It Begins… WOMAN ARRESTED For Protesting Smart Meter Installation (Video)

It’s an Obama World…
You will do as you’re told. You will keep your temperature at an Obama-approved level… Despite the double-standard set by our president.

A woman was arrested this past weekend for not allowing officials to install a smart meters in her neighborhood.
The P/Oed Patriot reported: reported:

An activist protesting against the installation of ‘smart’ meters was arrested today for civil disobedience. Amy O’Hair was arrested at Monterey and Edna in the Sunnyside neighborhood of San Francisco at 9.30 on Saturday 18 June 2011.

She sat on the hood of a smart meter installation truck to prevent installation of smart meters and refused to move. The police were called and arrested her. It was early in the morning, and few people were around, but a bystander waiting at a bus stop gave support. Amy was taken to 425 Seventh Street (Bryant Police station) to be cited.

The Obama EPA-approved smart grid will track CO2 emissions and internet use.

    don’t people have anything better to do…ahh CA what a backasswards state

  • Brian

    Getting cited on your own property. Getting charged on usage is reasonable. Any further monitoring is likely a violation of the US constitution. Shame that a *proper* lawsuit accusing the government of this violation would soak up a lot of resources, be a ton of trouble and likely result in harassment by the government.

    What a shame, but this didn’t happen overnight, but over decades.

  • GUS

    And the Republicans are doing ABSO-F**KING-LUTELY NOTHING to stop this intrusion on America’s Liberty.


    But in brighter news, John Boehner went golfing over the weekend.

  • Granny

    I was prepared to be enraged, then I saw that this happened in the People’s Republic of San Francisco. I’m sorry – they have been legislating Happy Meals, circumcision and heaven only knows what else while utterly ignoring immigration laws and anything else they don’t like. They deserve the First for the “smart grid.”

  • Joanne

    I wonder what they would have done if she was a black muslim woman in a burka refusing to get off the vehicle.

    The TSA has the disturbing right to molest passengers and take naked photos of them, so I’m figuring the government thinks that if people have accepted that, they will accept just about anything they throw at them.

    Americans should be throwing a hissy-fit that Obama produced a FRAUDULENT long-form birth certificate, but nothing there either.

    F*ck John Boehner!

    The power co is trying to do this in Georgia. My wife works 2nd shift. You going to turn off her AC when she sleeps during the day? Luckily I know how to sabotage anything.

    Please note the locale – San Francisco; home to Nancy (“I made 62 million in an Obama economy!”) Pelosi, the abhorrent ‘Gay Pride Day’, and other twisted examples of human depravity and degradation.

    And to think, the uncorrupt remains of a true 20th Century miracle working Saint (John of Shanghai and San Francisco) lie in peace in this city he loved.

  • Wow! I refused the Smart Meter install the first time around but they came back and I didn’t fight it. Guess this answers the question of what would have happen, if I had…

    The freakin’ arrested her! UNBELIEVABLE.

  • GUS

    But Sarah Palin is stupid.

  • KansasGirl

    Is this what O meant when he said he wanted to “change” America. Commie bstrds.

  • PJ

    So the smart meter does…what? Is this the thing CARB was trying to pass and talk radio guys organized protests against?

  • Guy in Ohio

    #7 – M/C … sadly, most people don’t even understand what they are planning to do with these smart meters. They aren’t capable of “turning off” anyone’s A/C, at least not here in Ohio. They do have water heaters than can be turned off though …

    All these meters do is feed the power company information on how much power you use, and WHEN you use it. In Ohio, the way it works is simple … you either sign up for a dual rate plan, where they GOUGE you for using power between certain hours, and charge you much less for off hours usage, or you keep your existing plan, and your entire bill goes up. It’s the usual “we’re doing you a favor and giving you a choice” approach.

    Most people will opt for the dual rate plan, but since they will probably continue to live the way they normally live, they’ll get slammed with the higher rate for the bulk of their consumption, and their electric bills will “necessarily skyrocket”. Who wants to sit in a miserably hot house until ten PM, and then start cooking dinner to avoid the high rates?

    Don’t you just love how they are using technology to invade our lives and strip us of our freedoms?

  • Redwine

    When can we freely call the intentional abrogation of our liberty as “tyranny”?

  • This makes me ill

    well over 50% voted to have us dominated by communism. Our farmers grain doubled, meat goes up, diary is being imported, fisheries regulations tripled, no drilling, leases deleted, 42 new regulations placed on every small/middle business (now you must lay down a plastic tarp before putting up a ladder-protects mother earth). Coal mines are being shut down all over US. Health care is shutting down small doctor ran clinics, too many regs, prescriptions will triple, and all education has doubled. If you are black or minority you will be promised a government union job. How can innovation survive? How can the young buy homes? Illegals get free health care, free college, food stamps, housing and all the jobs that we want…our retirees have no part-time jobs they give it to illegals who can’t speak english. The repubs do nothing about Obamas fake SSN (fraud) and how the fly all over the world free. Why don’t they have investigations on Lisa Jackson? ANd site how many will be affected by her EPA regs???And Obama plays golf????? Now they want our mortgage interest??? Our 401K. Who would vote for this? In the last two years he has insulted our military, our science, our supreme justices..I mean everything!!!! Palestinians who hate JEWS and Israel in the WH, taking over public schools they think they are King/Queen and we are SUBJECTS not citizens…

    Isn’t it the height of irony that the supposedly “freedom-loving” hippies have all expressed their support for Communism and Socialism? Those are the two most freedom-destroying ideologies which have ever existed on the planet, up there with Islam. A hundred years of mass-graves and genocides: this is Communism and it’s brother Socialism.

    When I see an obvious hippie, I wince, because I see stupid, deceived people.

    When I smell patchouli, I smell mass graves, and it makes me sick.

  • dunce

    It was not that long ago that Ca. had rolling blackouts. When everyone has a so called smart meter, the utility company can pick and choose which users are cut off. In an ideal world the decisions would be fair and people living on electric powered life support at home and hospitals for example would have priority. Political considerations would have no place but in the real world some people would have special treatment and because individual users could be cut off while registered democrats would enjoy continuous service or registered republicans. The customer data base can easily be cross referenced with the voter registration lists. A little imagination could conceive more insidious plots. A businessman who supported an opponent might experience 3 minute power cutoffs during his busiest time of day every week.

  • big L

    The guy putting them in, said not only can they be read from the offices, they can be turned
    down (brown-out) and Off (lights out-no internet) Maybe solar/wind/big batteries have a point.
    I hate that thing as there is no way to back-check it. It used to be you could learn the way of reading it and check the bill. Because they used to estimate. Also the wheel truning would tell you if somethin is wrong. Thre is a “fast meter” sundrome when the lines on the pole are coated
    with salt or pollution or guano. and your power is intermittent.
    Now we get bupkis-big brother.
    There are a bunch of people that say they are made sick by
    them…the radiation is intense for them. He was on the radio, has a web-site.

  • Joe Redfield

    It’s interesting that the site says they oppose the meters because of the supposedly high level of radiation the meters emit, but says nothing about the Big Brother aspect. In other words, they’d be all for smart meters if they were healthier.

    [SELECTIONS from the paper “Problems Facing Our Socialism” by Barack Obama, Sr., the father of Barack Obama, Jr., published in the July, 1965 issue of the East Africa Journal, a paper which lays out the father’s socialist and anti-Western convictions, a discovery which I suggest reveals the “rosebud” of Barack Obama’s Dream’s From My Father. Obama’s paper is a critique of Sessional Paper No. 10 titled, “African Socialism and Its Applicability to Planning in Kenya” written by Tom Mboya’s Ministry of Economic Planning and Development.]

    1) This happened in a middle class neighborhood prone to blackouts, and poor servicing.

    2) The neighborhood is just next to one of the few districts in San Francisco known for voting Republican.

  • Pat the First

    Not sure why some of you are blaming Boehner and the GOP for something that is done on a state and local level. This has nothing to do with anything on the national level. Either you are for states and local governments having some authority or you aren’t. You can’t pick and choose which authority they have or don’t have.

  • Mn Jim

    I have a smart meter on my AC which turns it on and off hundreds of times a day. After a year, I had to have major service done to the AC unit because it wouldn’t turn on anymore. Fortunately in MN we don’t need AC that much.

  • Solarcooked

    To Pat the First, you are correct!

  • JDubya

    How ironic. San Francisco, the poster perfect picture of the Orwellian Utopia promoted by the DNC and progressive media is actually rebelling against thermostat controlling super nannies.

    Ha ha ha!

    I remember all too well in the 1960’s and 70’s how much the hippies preached non-conformity and being an individual and ended up looking, acting, sounding, and smelling the same. I see the herd mentality is still strong in Liberal bastions such as ‘Frisco.

  • lemonaide

    To Pat the First and Solarcooked: This is actually part of a national, UN driven initiative called Agenda 21.

  • aprilnovember811

    And the Obama regime is selling weapons to the drug cartels to kill Americans. He’s still in the White House and Holder is still in the DOJ. They were selling AK47’s to the drug cartels to make it look like guns were being bought in America. This was a ruse to infringe on the second amendment. Two border agents are dead and countless others.

    Doesn’t providing weapons to someone knowing they will be used in the commission of a crime make you an accessory to that crime? Obama and Holder, accessories to MURDER!!!!!

    They killed Brian Terry!!! They don’t get to regulate electricity usage. They’re killers!!!!

  • aprilnovember811

    Pat the First,
    John Boehner has it within his power to defund the EPA. He’s doing nothing. They also had a resolution to stop funding on the Libyan War. John Boeher intercepted it and gave the Muslim Brotherhood member Obama two more weeks at $2Million a day to continue that. Then he golfs with this killer of border agents and others. If you haven’t noticed I’m enraged at Obama and those letting him abuse American citizens. He belongs in prison. It’s gotten to the point I’m sending information to the Mossad hoping they will investigate where he came from, and who he actually is. For our sake as well as theirs. Yes, the United States citizens have to turn to other governments to investigate who this Muslim infiltrator is. Just out of curiosity, why do people in San Francisco hate freedom so much? They keep voting for this.

  • owl

    Abolish EPA. The House needs to take a vote on this one and DEFUND EPA. Now. Today.

  • RobertWilliams


    The utility information generated by Wireless smart meters is NOT real-time and it is NOT formatted for customer use so it does NOT assist customers to use less energy or lower their utility bills. The information only assists the Utility Company to bill customers and shut off customer power remotely.

    In countries where Wireless smart meters are being installed, energy use is NOT decreasing, customer UTILITY BILLS ARE INCREASING, there are problems with SECURITY, HACKING, ELECTRICAL FIRES & ELECTRICAL INTERFERENCE.

    The Utility companies are salivating over eliminating the jobs of the full-time-with-benefit meter reader employees and replacing them with phone operators in India and the Philippines who read scripts to customers over the phone for $4 per day with NO Benefits.

    Wireless smart meters are NOT mandated by the US Federal Energy Program, as California’s PG$E pretends.

    42 Cities & Counties in California have taken positions AGAINST Wireless smart meters and 13 have passed Ordinances prohibiting the Wireless meters.

    ALSO: every appliance has or will have its own electronic signature, so yes, Wireless smart meters will give the exact information to the utility company and the government will have access to every move you make in your home. Existing analog meters only provide total usage and therefore protect your privacy.

    High-tech home robbers (and high-tech child molesters) will also hack this information and know exactly your habits and when you are not home (and when your children are home).

  • RobertWilliams


    Utilities and Health Departments based previous safety claims on World Health Organization (WHO).

    But June 1 2011, WHO says Wireless Smart Meter radiation is linked to CANCER (possible human carcinogen – same as Lead, DDT, etc), and that means it also damages bodies & brains (including children’s) in many ways, other than cancer.

  • Speaking Clearly

    Gus #3: You bring up an important point.

    It would be nice to hear the GOP that was elected in 2010, speak the truth to the people that elected them into office…this includes the Speaker…as to what exactly is their strategy to undo this Progressive nightmare??


    …Then come out and say it !!!!!!!

    Even though Gingrich is not my favorite candidate…he is the ONLY candidate that is communicating the OBVIOUS to the American people.

    If our leaders are POWERLESS to do anything until we have Conservatives controlling all 3 branches of Government, then be honest and say it to the American people….

    ….otherwise…it would be nice to know why Boehner seems to be so chummy with someone that is NEVER be trusted in the long run on decisions.

    I’m sorry, but what this country needs is NOT the Conservatives compromising with Progressives, or vice versa. It may not sound civil or politically correct, but what this country needs is Conservatives controlling all 3 braches of government.

    Howard Dean and the hysterical left can scream and whine lies all day long, that Conservatives want to take us back to the 1850’s…

    Tough $hit. We will not survive the way we are going unless we stop electing these uneducated idiot Progressives. They don’t understand anything except leeching off of the productive, and redistributing wealth.

  • Speaking Clearly

    …by saying the obvious…maybe this will wake up more sleepy Americans into voting for Conservatives more consistantly, IN ALL 3 BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT!


  • Speaking Clearly

    You know…I’m not endorsing Gingrich…

    …But Newt made the MOST TRUTHFUL AND PROFOUND STATEMENT that I have heard in a long time:

    He basically said: (paraphrased) ..if we don’t elect a majority of conservative GOP in the House, Senate, and for the President…then we will have another 10 years of of this nightmare.

    Wake up American people!

    Nothing of substance is going to get acomplished, until we gear up for another 2010, and sweep the House, Senate, and the Presidency like a Conservative hurricane.

    After looking at the smart meter protest site I left with the impression that the complaints are based in magical marxist hippie thinking and neo-ludditeism. PG&E was selling the infrastructure upgrade to the public in co-cal hippie speak. As the say goes garbage in garbage out.

    Does she realize that this is Obama’s (dumb) smart meter plan? But she’ll still vote for him again. Stupid is as stupid does. I have one and I cannot track my own usage with it. They could charge anything and I would not be able to verify it. I hope she has fun voting for SOBama again.

  • RussVet

    Anyone that wants to know power usage can always put their own power meter inside the house at breaker panel …. Seems they don’t want to build any power plants in greenie California so get use to big brother smart meter rationing or set in the dark. These meters are easy jam, or comm link shield, or just Tesla coil spark into the line and watch them pop….. The San Francisco Obozo and Piglosa liberals can always turn the public utiltiy power off and power house off solar or wind mills … ha haaaa….
